Review

For no reason other than we were all there at the same time, we took our favourite off-road hoon-wagon, an Ariel Nomad, and the brand-new Triumph Scrambler 1200, and pitched them against each other. Which is better? Which is faster? 

The Ariel Nomad has a 2.4-litre Honda engine with around 240bhp and weighs around 700kg. Our driver has never seen the forest we're racing around before.

The new Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE has a 90hp parallel twin and weighs just over 200kg. It's being ridden by former British and World Enduros Racer, British rally and Cross Country Championship competitor, Matt Reed, who is a Triumph Adventure Experience Centre instructor.
